On The Road.....Part 6

We are heading back to Oregon...

Here are a few more travel photos 

from Idaho and Wyoming.


Enjoy!



Bison Calf












Heath (our son) climbed Sawtell Mountain

Island Park, Idaho







Island Park Squirrel







This little fellow is destined to be in a quilt someday...







Yellowstone Ravens






Island Park, Idaho.....Sunset

Because of the nearby forest fires in Yellowstone,

 all of the sunsets during our visit to Island Park

looked just like this.





Heath is tracking grizzly bears in Island Park:


He took Brad to work with him this week...

Brad is kneeling by a grizzly day bed here...








Brad is removing grizzly hair 

from the bed to be analyzed







Heath and Brad.....after a long day 

of hiking and working





Heath took Brad to Yellowstone Lake...


they spent the day participating in a Lake Trout Study.

It's been a great trip!


I am looking forward to getting back into

the Thread Shed and getting a quilt under

the needle.

I will also post new quilt sketch designs

as time allows.

On The Road.......Part 5

While traveling through Jackson Wyoming...

I found a quilt shop that specialized in

wildlife fabrics...


Bison Fabrics...






Since Gunnr is such a BIG Bison fan...

I will use these fabrics in his new quilt....




I have been filling up a couple of my

sketch journals with new quilting designs:
























Spending the last 3 weeks out of doors...

I have been inspired to draw botanical designs...












A few playful background fill designs...




































Gunnr is an excellent traveling companion

in the back seat of the pick up...






He enjoys cuddling up with the Paul Harvey Quilt too!



More to Come....
